Looking for galley help/ideas

Hi there! We are a family of four soon to be living aboard our 45' Dufour Ketch. I wanted to see if I could get some good ideas with regards to stocking the galley with utensils. Brand names of different pots/pans, etc. I'm admittedly a "so so" cook and am nervous about making the switch to live aboard and eventually taking off sailing this December.

Thank you in advance.

Re: Looking for galley help/ideas

Hello Phil and Aimee,

Welcome to sailnet. What kind of pots and pans do you have at home? Wouldn't you want to take your favorites with you?

I tend to choose pots and pans for their intended purpose, rather than a particular brand. I think the only " matched set" I ever owned is a copper bottom, stainless farberware set someone gifted with my 1st apt. It's still around though.

Otherwise, I have specialty omelet pans, stockpots, saute pans, sauce pans, woks etc.
I even have a large variety of cast iron pans. Many of the above are commercial grade, accumulated over the years.

Many folks here like to use crock-pots and seem to love them.

There are so many "designer" brands and choices out there now and some get pretty pricey. Frankly, I think it's unnecessary to spend huge dollars on Celebrity pot sets.

Commercial cookwear tends to be Stainless, Steel, Aluminum and occasionally copper

When you get in to home use, you get into bi-metals, non-sticks, glass lids vs metal lids etc. Some of the lids and knobs are not oven proof. I saw a very expensive French mfg Dutch Oven..who's lid knob was not oven proof. For about $330.00 less I purchased one that required no modification and frankly I could see no difference that warranted that price differential.

So, my advice might be to start with your typical menu items and find the pot that you like best for that purpose.

Why would you go out and buy all new ? If you have recently, or are planning to soon, move aboard your boat then surely you'd just take all or some of your home gear. With the obvious exception of the electrical appliances.

You'll soon figure out what works and what doesn't. Discard and replace as you go along.

Re: Looking for galley help/ideas

Thank you for the helpful ideas. We plan to take most of what we already own, just wasn't sure about rust if there were better alternatives.

Re: Looking for galley help/ideas

We use pans with removable handles so that they stack into each other and use less room to stow, but we also have a small iron griddle and a small wok. We use Corelle dishes since they don't break.

One of the bigger use items that we didn't use on land is a pressure cooker. We make a lot of meals in it since it cooks so much faster, and we also use it for some canning.

+1 on The Boat Galley and using what you already own until it has to be replaced.

I usually find that checking the bottom of the page in the Similar Threads section produces good results. I see some threads there now that might prove useful.

I've had the same set of non-stick pots onboard for 10 years. No rust issues.

I've had some steak knives develop rust, but thats about it.
